For freshman who have joined the Marching Band this year, the step up to Logan's standards is proving to be a large one.

"There are some good things and some bad things" about the move from middle school band to the award-winning high school version, said Freshmen Payal Pratap, "I hate how we have to play and march at the same time, but the cool thing is you get to go more places, meet new people,
and try different styles of music."
"It's a lot harder
than middle school, said Kevin Notohamiprodjo, synthisizer player, "High school marching band has higher standards, and is very time consuming."
However, there are those students who believe that the marching band isn't as difficult as it seems. "It's fun because of the people. [Students] are all really helpful and they make me laugh during rehearsals," explains Cherese Cabardo, who plays the flute.
To see the band in action attend a home varsity football game, or see Logan's Field Show on November 11.
